Notes

Had this on my “Want to knit” list for ages and now decided that I need another oversized alfaknits sweater… I am not totally sure what colour I will use for the almonds…

January 29, 2022

Finished top almond and working on the short rows to “fill up” the space around. Was not aware that the sleeves are seperated quite late, so there is a LOOOOT of ptbl increases… sighs
But at least I know how to do those now…

I really like my colour choice of the dark brown combined with the pinkish-orange-red sockyarn.

February 1, 2022

Close to separating sleeves from the body - finally I am done with ptbl-increases, yeah!

February 2, 2022

Separated sleeves from the body, started the second brown 100 g ball shortly after that.

February 7, 2022

Finished lower almond and started “filling up” short rows.
Ran out of pinkish yarn shortly before starting the almond, will use cream as CC2 and red as CC for the almond and the rest of the sweater.

February 13, 2022

Picked up 91 stitches for the sleeve, decreased only every other row

February 14, 2022

Started second sleeve, ran out of first ball of red yarn app. 1 cm into ribbing.

February 18, 2022

Finished second sleeve.
Picked up 147 stitches for the neck, will do a simple rolled brim instead of Icord, will decrease every 10th stitch to around 90-100 stitches, will do app. 10-16 rounds before bind off.

Bound off in non elastic bind off after 108 stitches and 15 rows. A bit on the tight side but I was able to get my big head through.

“Tits” ( Almonds) seem to have blocked out quite flat after washing.
